Philippians 4:19 – “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
If God owns everything—will God take care of me? Philippians 4:19 tells us that He certainly will take care of us. God will provide! We have to know and it has to be on the inside of us.
Paul says, “I want to get you involved in the law of reciprocity so that fruit will begin to come up.” Understand that seed in the ground is better than seed in the barn. Ten seeds in the barn will always give you 10 seeds in your hand. A seed in the ground goes through a germination process. That seed just released will never come up as just one seed. It’s always going to come up far more than what was put in the ground.
When you begin to release the seed to its optimal environment then it can be released into maximum potential. I want fruit to abound to your account. When God smells our offering, it’s a sweet smelling aroma—a sacrifice.

The Source of Your Supply is God
The source of the supply is my God. You may have a channel that stuff comes through but God is the source. Your business is your channel not the source. The source is always God. Your job is not the source—it is the channel. Never treat the channel like the source. The channels can change. You can have multiple streams. Verse 20, My God and Father. He’s not just God but He is Father.
“He is your Father.”—Pastor Bill Johnson
Luke 12:32, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
The Scope of Supply is ‘All My Need’
Verse 19, “And my God shall supply ALL of your need.” Supply means to fill, make complete, and provide all of your need. There is no limitation! God said, “if you need it, I’ll supply.” What is it that you need? Whatever you have need of—God will supply!
“God loves giving.”—Pastor Bill Johnson
Romans 8:32, He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Some of us think we have to qualify, in a sense of deserving. Before you were even thought about, He made provisions for you.
The Standard of Supply is ‘According to His Riches in Glory by Christ Jesus’
God is not looking to your riches to supply your need. God is not limited to your reserves to supply your need. What He has is far better than what you have. He’s going to supply your need according to His riches in glory. When nothing else could help, God sent His own Son—the best of what He had to take care of your sin debt—Jesus. If He sent Jesus—A mortgage is no problem.
